The Coach John Willis Project
- Former students and athletes of Coach John Willis and supporters within The Glynn County School Syst
- United States of America
Coach John H. Willis came to Brunswick High School in or around 1980, as the Head Coach of The Brunswick High Football Team. Prior to the arrival of Coach Willis, the football program at Brunswick High School performed below average at best. There was no real direction or purpose to the program and very little community support. When Coach John Willis took over the Football program, he instituted the school Spirit called PIRATE PRIDE, and instilled the following philosophy inthe hearts and minds of the many young men under his direction: He consistently told all of us, "IF YOU WANT TO BE GREAT, YOU HAVE TO PAY THE PRICE!"
Coach John Willis sucessfully changed not only the culture of Football at Brunswick High School, but because many of his football players were multi sport athletes, his PIRATE PRIDE influence extended in all other athletic programs. The commitment to excellence of Coach John Willis resulted in The Brunswick High Pirates becoming Region Champions and even playing in the Finals of The State Championship.
Therefore, it is the desire of this petition to Immortalize Coach John H. Willis by respectfully petitioning The Glynn County Board of Education to amend it's Rules to name the practice field at BRUNSWICK HIGH SCHOOL...... JOHN H. WILLIS field.
WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, FORMER STUDENTS AND ATHLETES OF BRUNSWICK HIGH SCHOOL AS WELL AS FORMER STUDENTS OF GLYNN ACADEMY AND OTHER SCHOOL SYSTEMS LOCALLY AND STATEWIDE, RESPECTFULLY CALL UPON THE GLYNN COUNTY BOARD OF EDUCATION TO AMEND THE RULES AND PROCEDURES OF THE SAME, TO NAME THE PRACTICE FIELD AT BRUNSWICK HIGH SCHOOL, "JOHN H. WILLIS FIELD".
